It's Blog Action Day today!

Bloggers Unite - Blog Action Day

Here are some questions to ponder, inspired by Blog Action Day: how environmentally friendly is your library? Do you...
  • turn off lights and computers and printers when they are not needed, such as overnight?
  • Donate discarded items for re-use?
  • Recycle holdings lists, picking lists, all those other lists that accumulate in libraries?
  • Have a recycling bin in the lunchroom?
  • Have water-saving fittings in the bathrooms?
  • Look for companies producing products that have the least environmental impact?

There's lots of tips on the web for making offices more environmentally friendly; have a look around and see if you can apply any of these strategies to your workplace. The InterALIA newsletter from September 2004 has a few tips specifically for libraries; so there might be a good place to start! :)
